The Most Progressive and Complete Guide to DDO-Based Ciphers Developers have long recognized that ciphers based on Permutation Networks (PNs) and Controlled Substitution-Permutation Networks (CSPNs) allow for the implementation of a variety of Data Driven Operations (DDOs). These DDOs can provide fast encryption without incurring excessive hardware costs in modern telecommunication networks. However, until now, with a few exceptions, most DDO-based ciphers have been poorly represented in available literature and have continued to remain known to only a small number of encryption experts. In Data-Driven Block Ciphers for Fast Telecommunication Systems, Nikolai Moldovyan and Alexander Moldovyan, major innovators and holders of several dozen international patents in encryption technology, provide the background and detail the applications needed to investigate new properties of PNs especially relevant to the improvement of modern wireless systems.Furthermore, they propose a universal architecture involving controlled bit permutation instruction that will permit the performance of both data-driven permutations and an arbitrary prescribed fixed permutation in a single cycle. Immediately improved efficiency for current and future fast telecommunication systems and mobile networks Because of its simplicity and efficient use of current hardware, the embedding of this architecture is a highly attractive option for CPU manufacturers.By detailing all the relevant information into a single volume for the first time, the authors of this book make that option more feasible than ever before.

Erstmals packen die Hacker aus. Ende des Jahres 2010 nahmen weltweit Tausende an den digitalen Angriffen der Hackergruppe Anonymous auf die Webseiten von VISA, MasterCard und PayPal teil, um gegen die Sperrung der Konten von Wiki-Leaks zu protestieren. Splittergruppen von Anonymous infiltrierten die Netzwerke der totalitären Regime von Libyen und Tunesien. Eine Gruppe namens LulzSec schaffte es sogar, das FBI, die CIA und Sony zu attackieren, bevor sie sich wieder auflöste. Das Anonymous-Kollektiv wurde bekannt durch die charakteristische Guy-Fawkes-Maske, mit der sich die Aktivisten tarnen. Es steht für Spaß-Guerilla und politische Netzaktivisten ohne erkennbare Struktur, die mit Hacking-Attacken gegen die Scientology-Sekte und Internetzensur protestierten. Internetsicherheitsdienste und bald auch die gesamte Welt merkten schnell, dass Anonymous eine Bewegung war, die man sehr ernst nehmen sollte. Doch wer verbirgt sich eigentlich hinter den Masken? Inside Anonymous erzählt erstmalig die Geschichte dreier Mitglieder des harten Kerns: ihren Werdegang und ihre ganz persönliche Motivation, die sie zu überzeugten Hackern machte. Basierend auf vielen exklusiven Interviews bietet das Buch einen einzigartigen und spannenden Einblick in die Köpfe, die hinter der virtuellen Community stehen.
